Help Tell the Story of Aurora, CO

Posted on Sep 10, 2013 in Arts & Culture | 0 comments

Over the next few months, the Museum will begin a journey to discover Aurora – who we are and how we got here. We’d like your input. Assist us in creating the exhibit with your stories, memories, and thoughts!  This is your chance to help make history!  (…and we know that the Asian/Pacific communities have stories — old and new, then and now!)  In October, the Aurora History Museum will break ground on a new gallery addition to house one of our most prized objects – Trolley Trailer No. 610. This addition, named for our dedicated friend and volunteer, Ruth Fountain, will increase the Museum’s permanent exhibit gallery by 1,300 square feet, giving us the opportunity to create a larger, more exciting exhibit about Aurora. Here’s how simple it is to share your stories:  click on the link below and answer as many questions as you’d like. We’d be delighted with any information you can provide!  Then forward this email to all your friends, family, and neighbors. There’s no age limit.  Anyone can participate!   (Join the conversation — use #AuroraAsian.)  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Aurora_exhibit ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jennifer Kuehner Executive Director Aurora History Museum & Historic Sites and Preservation City of Aurora, Cultural Services Division 15051 E.

Telephone Scam

Posted on Sep 4, 2013 in Immigration | 0 comments

Telephone Scam Recently we learned of a new telephone scam targeting USCIS customers.  Most of the victims who have notified us about this scam are non-immigrants from India.  Scammers are using a technique called “Caller ID spoofing” to display a misleading or inaccurate phone number in a recipient’s Caller ID.  The scammer pretends to be a USCIS official and asks for personal information such as Social Security number, passport number, or alien number.  They claim there are problems with the person’s immigration records, and ask for immediate payment to correct those records. If you receive a call like this, we urge you to say “No, thank you” and hang up immediately. We NEVER ask for payment or personal information over the phone.  Any request we make for payment would come in the mail on USCIS letterhead stationery.  Do not give payment or personal information over the phone to anyone who claims to be a USCIS official.  We encourage you to protect your personal information and not to share details about your immigration case in any public area. If you have been a victim of this telephone scam, please report it to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, or report it to an appropriate state authority. If you have a question about your immigration record, please call the National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283, or make an InfoPass appointment. Janna M.
